We travelled up from Yorkshire in our car. The hotel was very impresive,clean and bedroom comfy. Unfortunatly we found the staff unhelpfull and a little aloof. The food was not up to the standing we always find with Shearings. The menu was very limited although you could order from a seperate menu at an extra cost. This should not be...

We did manage to...

Booked this with Shearings in December. Hotel in the process of being refurbished. A little disiruption from the builders, but nice to see up grades taking place. Food was average, but good value for the low price we paid. Room was clean comfortable and spacious. Pool area and sauna was a bonus. Staff were hard working and polite. No complaints....

Hi, sorry you were not thrilled with the entertainment we had on offer for you. Entertainment can be a difficult thing to balance and satisfy everyone but I believe the mixture for NYE was very good. We had a traditional Scottish folk singer to start proceedings, a piper to pipe for you, a very able and talented singer to generate...
